Hi there,

I'm looking at a pc with intermittent issues regarding BSOD on boot, Stop codes are 0x00000050 / 0x0000000A / 0x0000001E

Can happen 5  boots in a row, or one in 20 , no real pattern.

I tested the RAM, gave it 3 passes per stick and came up clean.

System stable when running....

Scandisk reports HDD is clean.
Fans all seem to be running well, although graphics card fan appears to increase/decrease velocity slightly every so often.

Bootlogging showed a BSOD after kmixer on one occassion.

Any Ideas?

check the event logs: [control panel] > [administrative tools]
see if there is anything that might tell you whats causing them.. also what OS are you using?

ok, read that one already.... thats why I ended up testing the ram, if it were the mobo or cpu I'd expect it to hang when running.

as far as drivers.... ran verifier and found that only non-signed drivers were installed long before any issue arose.

appreciate the help, think its a little more complex though...

ok, try booting in safe mode and see if it still happens.

if not try uninstalling/reinstalling drivers (mainly graphics, network, modem, mice, keyboard)

oh one more thing.. I remeber having the problem with my 2k machine ages ago. try replacing the power supply with one that has a higher wattage.

was thinking maybe psu due to the variance in the graphic card cooling fans speed.

will keep trying safe mode to see if I can recreate it, may take a while :)

Zip 5 to 6 minidumps and attach the zip files at any webspace. You can find the  minidumps at the folder of the \winnt\minidumps. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

there is no \winnt\minidumps folder , also arent minidumps created when windows itself crashes after fully loaded?

if not then where else may I find them.

The Stop 0x50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory. The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.

When Windows crashes with blue screen, it writes a system event 1001 and  and it has the content of the blue screen

Control Panel -> Adminstrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System -> Event 1001. Copy the content and paste it back here

I've just come back from vocation. I think you are looking into application event log and I system event 1001.

Do you find any minidumps at the folder \windows\minidumps. If yes, zip 4 to 5 mindumps and attach the zip files at any webspace.
